AUTUMN & CHRISTMAS PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES

Our most popular course gives students a solid footing in photography and teaches you how to become master of your camera, whether you’re using a compact or digital SLR. It’s fun, practical and covers all the basics. From photographing friends to creating eye-catchy compositions this course will provide you with the basic skills to make your photography stand out from the rest.

Teens will learn how to:

  • use different camera settings for creative effect
  • set a correct exposure in different modes and various situations
  • create strong images and unusual pictures

What students are saying:

“SOOOO glad I found you!”

“I wish I could do this course every day!”
NA, 13 years old

“I have continued to the advanced course right after the introductory course because I enjoyed it so much! The course was wonderful, Julia was so professional and nice. She taught us so many tricks and tools to become more creative. I especially liked our days outside the Lab, photographing in the streets and looking for creative angles and perspectives.”
